The Cabbaggetown Regent Park Museum, Riverdale Farm location, was host to over 9,000 visitors from February to November 2009 despite being closed for two months due to the strike. Visitors came from as far afield as Russia, Ukraine, Australia, New Zealand, and China to name a few.
Mission & Mandate


The Cabbagetown/Regent Park Community Museum is a not-for-profit organization that strives to actively collect, preserve and display the history of Cabbagetown and Regent Park from the late 1800s/early 1900s to present day. Using oral histories, artefacts, photographs and printed material, we will present the stories of the local community and place them within the larger, global context.


The first cooperative project between the two Toronto regions, the museum bridges cultural and economic gaps by raising awareness of the unique history they share in the growth of Toronto and Canada. We strive to help these communities find their common history and cultivate a sense of pride of place while illustrating the importance of the neighbourhoods’ working-class and multi-cultural roots.
